Non-doms: Britain’s integrity postponed

Tax Justice Network: Non-doms: Britain's integrity postponed.

I worked with David drew MP to try to get non-doms banned from making political donations to UK political parties.

A number of other MPs also worked the issue.

We thought we'd won. But Jack Straw has sold out on the issue in a most underhand way. The law will not come into effect before the next general election.

As the Lib Dems said:

To support an important piece of legislation stopping this underhand practice and not bring it in before a general election is like banning a drug-taking footballer but allowing him to play in the cup final

TJN has all the links.

But I just wonder what more the Cabinet can do to commit electoral suicide?
